Set up your DNS to Lumu - Router Configuration

Router Configuration

In this article, we cover how to set the DNS servers on a router with direct connectivity to the internet. Setting up Lumu Gateway for Continuous Compromise Assessment on a router is the deployment recommended for enterprises where all the traffic is directed to the internet via a router device. If you want more context on Lumu Deployment scenarios, consult our documentation.

Remember to first register your public IP address or group of IPs as a gateway for your company at the Lumu Portal before configuring your DNS.

Requirements

  1. Administrative access to the router device.
  2. A browser to access your router administrative interface.
As every router may use different configuration tools and custom interfaces, it is important to consult the manufacturer's support website that corresponds with your exact router model.

Adjust DNS settings

Most modern routers provide a configuration interface (administration panel) that can be accessed using your web browser as if it were a website. The page is served to your browser directly from the router.

1. Navigate to your router’s local address, you can type the IP address of your router as you do with URLs (example: http://192.168.0.1/ or http://192.168.1.1/). You may need a password to have access to your router settings.

2. After accessing your router’s configuration panel, search for the DNS settings. It might look like this:

Before making any changes, we recommend writing down your current settings as back-up before changing DNS addresses.

3. Enter the Lumu DNS server addresses (or Virtual Appliance IP) as the router's DNS server settings and save/apply. Some routers have you restart the router to apply the changes.

Remember: The Lumu default DNS resolvers IPv4 addresses are: 
50.17.0.10
3.87.85.24
Don't forget to confirm that your DNS is set to be static.

Validate your settings

The final step is to verify that your DNS connections are correctly routed through Lumu. See Validate your DNS Settings for more information.
